Dairy recalls yogurt because of likely connection to outbreak

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Pure Éire Dairy is recalling certain yogurt because state officials reported it could be contaminated with E. Coli O157:H7. The health department is investigating an outbreak of E. Coli infections in Washington.

The dairy announced the recall on its Facebook page, saying that it has requested retailers to remove alll PCC Markets brand and Pure Éire brand yogurt from sales.

This container of PCC Markets yogurt was in the home of one of the outbreak patients.

The company is also advising consumers to not eat any of the yogurt if they have it in their homes.

The recall comes amidst a growing outbreak of E. Coli infections in Washington State. As many as 11 people across four counties are sick. All but one are children. Food safety attorney Bill Marler is representing three of the patients.

A common denominator among the three patients is that they all ate the yogurt, Marler said. He said health department officials have collected samples of yogurt from one of the patient’s homes for testing. As of midnight the Washington Department of Health had not responded to requests for information about the outbreak investigation.

The yogurt subject to recall is PCC organic grass-fed yogurt in 8- and 16-ounce containers. All flavors and all best-by dates are included in the recall, according to a notice on the PCC Markets website. 

Additional products are listed in the recall as possibly containing the recalled yogurt. Those products are yogurt on the salad bar, Butter Chicken from the hot bar and to-go casseroles, Spicy Yellow Curry Chicken from the hot bar and to-go casseroles, Tzatziki Sauce from grain bowl bar to-go spreads, and Sticky Toffee Pudding with the refrigerated desserts.

Marler said he anticipates additional recalls because the producer packages product under different brands.
